Last weekend, Hubby and I went to one of my college friend’s wedding in Richmond. The wedding was wonderful! I was suprised to see that there were no floral arrangements; the front of the church had a simple altar layed out for communion, which the bride and groom served, and every other pew had a ribbon and tulle bow attached. I found myself not missing the flowers, usually a must at weddings!
Here are some of the photos I took from the day:

This weekend was action-packed and fun filled! Friday night, Hubby and I went to a game between the farm team for the Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox. We’re lucky enough to live about 20 minutes from the Red Sox’s stadium here, so we can go frequently. Plus, general admission tickets are on $7, and they have some of my favorite ball park foods! The game really wasn’t that good or exciting, the teams are the lowest level farm teams, but we had a wonderful time.
Saturday, we traveled to one of my best college friend’s wedding. It was wonderful to see all my college friends, and the bride looked GORGEOUS!
The wedding was in her grandparents backyard, overlooking the mountains, and was garden themed. The bride has a real love of musicals, flowers and fruit, and the wedding definitely reflected that. The grandparents were escorted down the aisle to “My Favorite Things,” the bridal party walked down to “Edelweiss,” and the bride was escorted by both of her parents to “How do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?”.
The bride and groom’s love of their friends and family was reflected at the end of the ceremony, where personally greeted each person who attended as they left their seats.
It was so great to spend time with these wonderful girls (I’m third from the left) and celebrate the beginning of a new family! Oh, and the bride had a super-sweet idea for table centerpieces I’ll post tomorrow, so don’t miss that!
This weekend, Hubby and I went down to my parents’ house to enjoy the warmth and help my mom throw a bridal shower. I helped host and prepare food, and Hubby helped walk the dog, park cars and then stayed out of the women’s hair. Here are a few photos of the fun event:
Check out the cute paper my mom printed the invitations on!
One of my “tasks” was to help set the tables. I really loved the simple white placemats and napkins paired with the punchy pink Gerber Daisies (the bride-to-be’s favorite flower!).
Here’s a closer look at the place settings, and the “library” side of my parents dining room.
I crafted two azalea arrangements from the bushes in my parents backyard. This one sat in the entryway.
And this one sat in our family room.
In addition to having people sit in the dining room and breakfast area, we had seating on my parents screened-in porch.
I helped with the prep, but my mom did all the actual cooking. Here she is with the mother of the bride and the heart shaped cheesecake she baked. I am now two pounds heavier thanks to this cheesecake.
Here’s the bride with the monkey pot-holder my mom got her!
Me presiding over the gifts and recipes with my high school friend, Maggie. She’s off to Boston for a fancy internship with a culinary magazine!
This was one of the neatest shower gifts! Even though this gift didn’t fit the “theme” of the shower, it was soo cool that I can’t wait to gift someone with it! It was a clear storage box on small casters FILLED with wrapping paper, bags, tissue paper, cards and ribbon. How fun is that!?
I really, really want a picnic basket like this now! Anyone know where I can get one? Also, how cute are the colors with the bride’s dress? She’s just too, too cute and fun!
I had a great, but exhausting time! It was so wonderful to be able to be a part of such a cute and wonderful bride’s wedding. I can’t wait to see her on her wedding day!
On a side note, I got a new haircut! I love how much lighter my hair is, and how much easier the hair that frames my face curls without all the extra weight.
Oh, and I also had a much-needed eyebrow wax. I’m a chicken and I’m too scared someone will rip-off the skin under them if I let someone new wax them. Yay for skinny brows
